Ponies are Baby Horses

I caught a second ride on Lizzy Friday morning- just a quick hack. I showed the photo to Paul and he asked if she was really wild. Nope- Lizzy is 23 years old- she fell asleep in the cross ties.  

Paul looked a little discombobulated and when I asked why he told me that he was surprised by Lizzy's age since he thought that ponies were just young horses that hadn't grown up yet. 


  1. Awwww she's cute!!

    Lol pony are young horses!!

  2. I hope my horse is still going strong at 23!

    1. Me too! The barn that Wilbur is vacationing at has a whole turnout just for ancients- 30+!
